Summer sessions: Mo Kolours’ Brazil party mix

Mo Kolours
Mo Kolours has produced a mix inspired by summers in Brazil.

Mo Kolours (real name Joseph Deenmamode) has made a big impression since his debut album launched in February this year – a soulful cut-and-paste project drawing on funk, dub, reggae and drifting vocal hooks.

The producer, singer and percussionist, who has an English/Mauritian heritage, has chosen to focus his summer session – a real party mix – on Brazil’s prolific jazz drummer Airto Moreira , a long-time musical inspiration of his.

“Airto’s music is still fresh, his music is joyful, fruity, rich with life, and bursting with optimism,” says Deenmamode. “That’s a great summer recipe that will work well as a salad for your hazy evening barbecue!”

The songs in the mix all feature Airto in some way, either as a musican, writer or producer. “I think Airto brings heartfelt, raw self expression, that shows a kind of freedom that we all understand,” says Deenmamode. “Because it’s so real, people love what he does. A true creative force!”

For Deenmamode, a summer party simply would not be complete without Airto’s music: “A party isn’t a party, for me, unless the music is poppin’,” he says. “And if Airto is on the turntable, then you just know it’s going to be poppin.”
